Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.
